“The Australian neoclassical ambient doom duo, Divide and Dissolve, is crucial to the current paradigm of heavy music. Bandmates Takiaya Reed and Sylvie Nehill take up space within metal while also rejecting the notion that harmful behavior should get a pass: they stand firmly for the decolonization of all spaces, and the eradication of white supremacy.” – The Fader
Takiaya Reed (saxophone, guitar, live effects) and Sylvie Nehill (drums, live effects) are a heavy two-piece who create music designed to decolonise, dismantle white supremacy and empower people of colour & Indigenous people the world over.
Their new album Abomination is a culmination of their experiences over eight instrumental tracks, drawing inspiration from our ancestors, rivers, forests and bodies of water.
The album exists as a platform to transform the experience of space and time, to divide and to dissolve white supremacy, to decolonise, to fight for Indigenous Sovereignty which has never been ceded.
Since the release of their Music Victoria Award-winning debut album Basic in March last year which also earnt them Independent Artist of the Week on FBi and international praise from the likes of The Fader, i-D and Afropunk, Divide and Dissolve have quickly become one of the most talked about heavy acts in the world.
